We've been back home a couple of days. I am not so hot with jet lag! I'm trying to get my head back in the game here - just so many weeks 'til summer... bring it on!
I think Hawaii should be mandatory. Everyone needs to go:)
Elle and Hans are getting into the back to school 'til summer grind. Kevin is starting a whole new adventure.
We are going to be moving to California! He starts his new job on Monday. He's doing a cross country road trip right now.
It's a long story, but the short of it is, Kev was going to start with this company back in 2006. He had actually put in his notice at work on a Thursday. Hans was loosley 'diagnosed' in the TCH ER with Neuroblastoma just two days later on a Saturday. We hit pause on our lives for NB in many ways these past 4 and a half years. As my friend Michelle put it, now we are pressing Play.
NB is still a huge factor. But, we'll work around it. We will still seek out the very best treatments to keep our boy here with us, fighting the good fight until it is won. We will keep Hans' medical team at CHOP in charge of Hans' care. We'll find new local teams to care for Hans in our new town of Bakersfield, CA and in LA.
We are leaving behind the comfort of our friends, neighbors, the life we know, the medical set up we've got going on, our familiar schools, teachers, soccer team and Girl Scout troop, and not least of all, the Houston area NB community. We are returning to the West Coast; coming home to old friends and bringing ourselves much closer to family. We are excited for this move, but it won't be without it's challenges!! I'll keep you posted on all the ups and downs. We don't even know when we are leaving yet. We have an offer in on a house, and it could close May 2. That just seems like the worst month to move school kids... so the kids and I might pretty much wrap up the year here before we join Kev. We'll figure it out as we go, I guess...
Scans are in two weeks in Philly. Our schedule has been INSANE!
- Hans Weberling
- Bakersfield, CA, United States
- Hans was a busy, happy, sweet and fearless three year old when he was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. He fought his disease like a "gladiator" for nearly 6 years. Hans was an animal lover to his core. He was 'guarded' at home by his three cats, Black, Orange and Cotton. He also had his Golden Retriever, Honey, to keep him company. Hans enjoyed swimming, biking, gardening, grilling (he had his very own grill!), horseback riding, playing video games, building Legos, and flipping between Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Animal Planet. Hans loved all members of his family and he was a loyal friend. He had to go through a lot of treatment in his life. But Hans powered through it. His attitude was let's get this done! His motivation was always to get back home, to his family, pets, favorite foods and pool.
